6:24am
business network which we talk about the poverty rate. disturbing news. >> this is according to the cents us bureau. there is some debate as to how -- whether it is actually underscored or overestimated in terms of the poverty. people below the poverty line. but you mentioned it just right below $22,000 for a family of four. but right now, one in seven americans are below that line. that is the highest number we've been since 1994 and it is very close to an all-time record which would be right around 15%. so we've grown since last year. i think we were at 13.2% last year t doesn't include things, noncash income such as food stamps. it doesn't include capital gains. it doesn't include accumulated wealth if you had your home paid off. it is hard to make sure it is apples to apples. but eeghtd are way you slice it, the number is bad and it is worse than it was last year and it doesn't appear to be getting any better.
6:25am
-- but either way you slice it. >> i saw a report saying lend ares repossessed more homes last month than since the housing crisis began. markets seem to be holding their own. >> over 90,000 homes repossessed in the month of august alone. and it is baked in. that is the express we use all the time on wall street. it is baked into the number. we understand that it is as bad as it appears to be. inthat is one reason why we are in the range. yesterday, we were up on the dow. down just a touch on the s&p 500. so we're continuing to fight against what we call resistance. we are bouncing against resistance. it is a stealing of the range. we can't seem to break above it. yesterday was a perfect example. very choppery day. we can't seem to break through it. we've got got decent job numbers yesterday. 450,000 people filing for initial weekly claims.

>> you got to like the underdog role. they have some weapons, this houston texan team. they have a guy, andre johnson being heard of him in. >> yes. >> you should have heard of him because he might be the very best wide receiver in all of the nfl. he is big. he is strong, he is physical. he make defensive backs have nightmares in their sleep. last week, realtively calm because that foster kid we talked about went nuts. ' a beast. he is an animal. he is not a guy can you cover with a little corner. you better get some help there. i think deangelo hall will be looking for safety help from laron landry to come over and get this kid. >> would thought the houston texans would be the fantasy football darlings? >> we have to talk about some other guys to the defensive side of the ball. they have a guy, mario williams. you know of him because way back when, he was the number
6:42am
one pick in the entire nfl draft in front of vince young, in front of reggie bush and at times the former redskins gm made this pick. he got run out of town in houston for making this pick. this guy has turned out it be a stud. he stops the run there. this guy is not an easy match- up. get guess would gets that. trent williams. here what is he had to say a bout -- mario williams. >> just watching film. s, a great pass rusher, using his hands very well. >> how about your first few weeks? >> hello. welcome to the nfl. >> he did well against ware. i like trent williams. i like his attitude and the way he is playing on the field. >> this is the guy they needed
6:43am
and if week one is any indication, what he did against demarcus ware. i said how would you assess your performance. >> you are never going to be i perfect 30 for 30 against demarcus ware but i think i held my season. absolutely. he didn't say yeah, i was great. he said i did the best i could. i think i did my best. he is going up against two of the best in the nfl. they said okay go ahead and go single coverage against demarcus ware and we'll see how you did. >> we'll talk about that next hour, how houston was able to beat indianapolis and how the redskins can stop them and we can talk about the most ridiculous story of the day, how the black-eyed peas were named to perform at half time at the super bowl. >> not rush though. they didn't get the call. >> you think the way they were going lately, they should have
6:44am
been on the short list. >> well. >> there is always a back-up plan. >> they got black-eyed peas. >> skins game coming up this sunday. hopefully the weather should be pretty good for it. >> it will be great for it the game. sunday afternoon about 4:00, it should be sunny, mostly sunny and about 80, 81 degrees. not bad at all. let's look at what is happening with the current conditions being reported around the area. we are at 71 degrees here in the district. most of the area is in the 60s. 67 down in quantity you co. gaithersburg is at 63 degrees. cull ander, 63. win chft, # 5. off to the east, that is where you will find your 70s. 7 # in cambridge. 72 in stevensville. let's take a look at the satellite-radar for the region. -- winchester, 65. 72 in cambridge. here, just some rain showers that came through. nothing significant.
6:45am
month significant amount of rain either. this morning, we are left with some clouds. we have more clouds now building in. we had a brief period where we had some clearing going on but now more clouds are building in to the region. eventually, we'll see plenty of sunshine for today. here is a look at the tropical map. we've got hurricane karl. this is karl. hurricane warnings in effect for the coast of mexico. you know, remember, it hit the yucatan peninsula already, moved back out over the gulf waters. it is a category three hurricane. hurricane warnings there. meanwhile, hurricane igor, a big storm. category three as well, maximum sustained winds, 125 miles per hour. this is now a hurricane watch in effect for bermuda so we continue to watch this. i should mention julia. there is julia, tiny little thing losing its intensity. here is your forecast for washington for today. not a bad day. we have morning clouds becoming mostly sunny and nice this
6:46am
afternoon. 84degrees. sorry, tucker. what? tucker started talking to my during the weather cast. tomorrow and sunday are going to be fine days. lots of sunshine. highs will be in the low 80s. it will be great. monday, 79 degrees for your high. tuesday, still nice. 80degrees. looks like we'll be dry for the next several days. that make for a great opportunity to be outdoors an do stuff but we are down in terms of our rainfall amount. >> that little amount overnight probably didn't do much. >> no, it doesn't do much. speaking of rainfall, it is time to act weather guys, the most popular segment in local television. tucker barnes and i put our big heading to to answer your most pressing questions, weather- related or otherwise. today's question is from gina in manassas. we have edited this question. most of what she wrote was praise for our show. i'm serious an how much she
6:47am
enjoys it. we took the high road. >> typically, you edit it by adding thing like that. >> here is her question. i was wondering what effect it the dry summer would have on our fall colors. >> it's good question and it is likely to have an effect on our fall colors. this is complicated. basically, if we have a relatively dry summer which we've had and we don't have enough rain, that tends to mute the colors a little bit and delay the onset of the colors. >> not as pretty. >> not as vibrant. >> that is correct. the main thing that affects when the leaves fall every year is the calendar. it is the length of the night. as the nights lengthen and they get cooler and cooler, that is what signals the trees to start dropping those leaves. so in term of the colors,
6:48am
rainfall and other things impact it as well but rainfall does impact it. that is the simple version. >> i just wand to add one thing that could save the fall colors, cool nights inform we get a nice streak of long, cool nights, that really helps the sugars in the leaves as they start to change and will impact the color we see over the next couple of weeks. there is not a lot of rain in sight. not going to provide enough soil moisture over the next couple of weeks to save the fall foliage this fall. >> here is what you want for the absolute best autumn colors, a warm, wet spring a summer that is not too hot or dry and a fall with plenty of warm, sunny days and cool nights as tucker said. that gives you optimum conditions for the leaves. we have a lot of information here. it is very interesting. >> you guys are great at what do you. >> very good. >> i've already seen some leaves that are fallen. this is pretty normal or is
6:49am
that ahead of schedule that we see them already? >> sure. all the trees -- it depends on the type of tree. for example, some trees, the leaves don't turn red. they only turn yellow and orange. this is something that i learned. the trees, when you see the leaves that turn yellow and orange, guess what? shows leaves are always yellow and orange. it is just aduring the summer, the chlorophyll in the green covers that color. as the night become longer and cooler, that florida -- chlorophyll dissipates and restrcts and you are able to see the orange and yellow colors. >> cool! >> it is just amazing what we learn. >> it is wonderful. ! >> all right. if you have a question you want answered, go to myfoxdc.com. we are back to doing our own research. >> julie, you want to throw some more praise on had heap.
6:50am
>> what can i say. there are hardly words. >> now, that is rather striking for you. >> well, it is because lauren is tending me to keep it tight. on the roads right now, you will fine lanes are open if you are traveling the top stretch of the beltway leaving university boulevard headed around towards georgia avenue. no incidents to reported coming eastbound on 66, we've got volume delays leaving manassas. slow traffic in centreville with the wreck on 28 at the shoulder. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. >> thank you. ben affleck's much anticipated crime drama open this is weekend and also new at the box office ache comedy that took its inspiration from the scarlet letter. joining us now is kevin mccarthy. >> how are you? >> great. how are you? >> great to be here. >> i'm hoping you were a big fan of this movie with ben
6:51am
affleck. >> i'm a huge fan of him as a director. >> this movies focuses on four bank robbers. they rob a bank in the beginning of the film and take the bank manager hostage. it turns out ben affleck is falling for this girl. she has no idea they are the bank robbers. it is a great dynamic with the chemistry between the two caches as well as john hamm who plays an fbi agent from mad men and is after the crew to try to take them down. it's great film.
6:52am
